“The journey of thousand miles starts with one step”

Similarly your blogging journey starts with the right topic selection.

Choosing the perfect topic for your blog will decide whether you fail or succeed online.

The best way to choose the right blog topic is: taking some time to decide on the topic which are you are interested in.

I’ll show you few money making topics in this post to give you a better idea about present blogging scenario.

Let me clear few things before choosing the kick ass topic for your blog.

Why do you want to blog?

For money? For personal experience or for popularity? Or for writing about everything you do in your life?

In all cases you need to build a proper planning to create a successful blog.

One of the biggest blogging mistakes which almost 80% of the new bloggers make is that they aren’t able to choose the perfect blog topic for their blogs and that is the reason for their blogging failure.

People will only read your blog if you write useful and quality articles on your blog in a specific topic, so how could you write a quality article on the topic you aren’t interested and don’t have any knowledge on.

How to avoid choosing the wrong blog topic?

Most bloggers start blogging just for making money and they pick a topic which they know pays high commission or the niche they choose is current hot and high paying niche which can make them most money, but they don’t have passion about those topics.

This is the sure fire way to make your blog a failure because you are not going to stick with the topic and when you do not enjoy what you are writing about, then you better quit it.

There are many tips to avoid choosing the wrong blog topic

  • Don’t choose a topic that is popular but you know nothing about
  • Avoid choosing a topic you see others are making money with
  • Do not choose a topic that someone else recommended it to you

How to choose the right blog topic?

In my opinion, you should focus on the topic in which you are passionate about, not the topic which is high paying and that has brought profits to others.

If you start a blog in your favorite topic it will help you when you need to come up with blog posts. You can share your own ideas and personal experiences about the topic in which you have passion and it’s gonna give you the reason to wake up at morning and continue sharing the things which makes you come alive and which you like.

If your blog topic is something in which you don’t have passion than you can’t write very good articles without crapping and copying others stuff.

How to find your passion?

It’s difficult for many bloggers to find their passion because it requires some serious brain storming, they can’t find the topic in which they are interested in. If you have any difficulty in finding a blog topic then don’t worry I will help you to find your one.

Just think about your daily life routine like what are you doing at free time playing games, cycling, watching TV, traveling, playing soccer and think about what type of blogs or newspapers you read most.

Few topics to choose a topic for your blog

  • Blogging
  • Internet Marketing
  • Social Networking & Media
  • Web Design
  • Finance
  • Reviews
  • News
  • Plugins
  • Tutorials
  • Parenting
  • Personality Development
  • Relationships
  • Copywriting
  • Entrepreneurship
  • Technology

If you are still stumped than ask your friends or family members what you are mainly interested in and what they think you’re good at? They might help you and say something like you are good at cycling or you help their computer problems. This is the way that I found my passion.

This is the way I found my passion, I like writing and typing and I spend more than 2 or 3 hours a day on writing that is why I’ve selected blogging niche.

So find out your passion and make your blog on that topic than it will not be a blogging for you, it will be a game for you which you will enjoy all the time.

Extra tip

I would highly recommend you to choose just one topic for your blog because If you blog about diverse topics such as news, technology, games etc, this will confuse your readers.

If you blog about just one topic then it will help your readers know what they can get from your blog.

It’s your turn

Why are you blogging and how did you find your passion? Let us know in comments below.

    Hello Ehsan,

    I always choose topics to write my blog posts based on my readers interest, based on my knowledge, my expertise because my belief is that when you know what you have to say and how you have to say, you say it in such a awesome way that everybody likes it, appreciate it and makes you hero.

    So my writing rule is,

    Write what you know, what your readers want to read not what you want to write.

    Walk with your readers and success is yours. :)

    BTW, Awesome post.. :)

    Romy Singh,

    • Hello Romy,

      You have selected a topic for your blog based on your hobby and passion that is why I love your blog because there’s a lot of awesome writing tips there.

      I’m glade you liked the post and leaved a valuable comment, It means a lot to me.

      • Romy Singh @GeekyWriter says:

        Thanks Ehsan for your words… I’m believer of following passion not mastery. So I always try to do what i love, try to say what i want to say.. :)

    • Rahul kuntala says:

      Hi Romy

      I like your blog because blogging is not a chore for you. You write only when you feel like expressing something. And that’s the reason why many people love to read your blog. But only few people know that you’ve other niche blogs where you compete with others ;)

  2. 80% of people who try to make money Blogging, they fail because creating and managing a blog is long process and need hard work, there’s not get rich quick scheme.

    Blogging is long learning process, so if you not enjoy you will certainly fail that is why finding the topic for your blog that can keep you alive for several years is must do.

    Thanks for publishing the article Rahul, Hope it can help Bloggers, specially newbie Blogger to start a successful blog.

    • Rahul kuntala says:

      I absolutely agree with your point Ehsan. Blogging is not a get rich quick scheme, it’s a evolving medium where patience is the key to success.

      I’m glad to host your post :)

  3. Nice post, Ehsan & Kuntala. Great and practical tips are out there. This is really true that niche of your blog/website is very important. Keep up the good work.

  4. I want to start my blog but was confused in choosing the topic. Your post will be helpful for me. Thanks for the post.

  5. well i think start a blog you are passionate about , for me incase it was football . i learned a lot about seo and blogging using my football blog , and after mastering seo skills i started to make a seo blog , let see what i learn from this blog so i can move on another lol

    Great post Rahul.

    • Saad, The secret of Blogging success is to stick with your blog in all cases and don’t be disappointed when no one read your blog. So you should stick with just one niche which you love instead of moving to another after sometime!

  6. I used to target weight loss niche, but I failed. I didn’t have any ideas about this niche nor passion with it. Thankfully, I stopped and moved to my passion – WordPress themes :) I love to share WordPress themes and find the best one for readers

  7. Very neatly written post, Great Work Ehsan! I falter at the extra tip you gave, I blog about a lot of topic, however they can be included under one word, Life or Lifestyle to be precise.

    A really well-written post. And to-date I haven’t even considered making money from my blog, tried infolinks just for the heck of it and removed it on Rahul’s suggestion!

    Thanks both!

    • Hi Aditya,

      No matter!\ If you have complete knowledge and interest on what you’re writing on your blog.

      I also don’t like Infolinks and never tried it but heard bad things about it. You should try Google Adsense to make money from your blog.

  8. Rahul, most of people hope to make some money blogging and in this case, unless you are into internet marketing or SEO it’s a hard proposition. Choosing your hobby as the blog theme is really not very good. I did that and Google sends me very few visitors on my engineering site. Thanks for posting!

    • Hello George, Thanks for your suggestion but it is not good to try to make money from your blog at first! Google will send you good traffic if you do it in right way!

      • Thanks Elshan for the reply. Of course my niche is not so easily profitable but once I get the right targeted audience the niche must be more stable than, say marketing.

  9. great article, it will help on the blog I am planning to create for money making purposes :-)

  10. Really awesome guy thanks for helping

  11. I started with celebrity news and updates to mobile reviews and other technology news. But now after reading articles about SEO, WordPress, Blogging, Affiliate Marketing and how to technology guide. I am moving further in this niche because of some knowledge. :-)
    As I have lost around 23 kg in 5 months, I will be starting a new blog about healthy tips which will be guiding people being fit and fine.
    Great blog post.. :-)
    Worth reading :-)

    • If you started with celebrity and technology than I suggest you to stick with it because it takes a lot of time to create and manage a blog. Celebrity isn’t bad choice if you have knowledge.

      BTW I’m glade you liked the post. Thanks for stopping by.

  12. i am seo girl…….so I m trying to write up my blog related to my industry as I luv seo (online marketing so much) and you blog I like seriously……this is very true about any blogger to write such thing on blog that people likes, you have good knowledge about that topic, reader will absolutely not get bored…

  13. Mahesh verma says:

    thanks Ehsan for sharing such a nice article with us. actually Choosing a blog’s topic is the hardest thing. Choosing a topic can take upto 2-3 days or 2-3 weeks too.

    • Glade you liked the post Mahesh, You are right! Finding your passion, the topic you are interested in or the topic you are knowledgeable takes time.

      I think you’re the last person commenting on this post. Will have to share it again:D

    • Rahul Kuntala says:

      Hi Kriti,

      You just have written 10 posts. I think, you’ll have better chances of getting Google AdSense once you’ve at least 80 to 100 articles. Let me know if you ever need any help.

  21. I like doing many things in my life. Would a blog about diverse topics like games, travel, and personal finance work? The theme would be life hacks and enjoying your life while on a budget.

    Not sure if that would be too “general” though…any thoughts appreciated, thanks!

  22. Hi,

    I would like to know how i should improve my blog, as i just began a few months ago with free wordpress blog. Want to move to professional hosting soon but not sure about topic to blog on! This is very confusing for me. Please help!


  23. The most vital aspect is to find your passion. If you have not find that, you cannot produce a masterpiece.
